In 2007/08 the Working Group On Ordinary Language Philosophy and the Aesthetic, organized by Sarah Beckwith and Toril Moi, and funded by Duke’s English Department from 2007 to 2009, organized events with Tim Gould (Denver Metropolitan University); Nancy Bauer (Tufts University) and Sandra Laugier (University of Amiens, France), and Richard Fleming (Bucknell University). In 2008/09, the Working Group decided to focus on Wittgenstein, and invited Professor Fleming, the author of Evil and SilenceFirst Word Philosophy: Wittgenstein-Austin-Cavell and co-editor of The Senses of Stanley Cavell, to return to Duke to give three week-end long seminars entitled “Philosophical Investigations Remark by Remark.” This was the very beginning of the center for Philosophy, Arts, and Literature at Duke University, which became official in the Fall of 2010.
